Best top install question

I'm installing my new trek top and I'm wondering if you need the door surrounds in? I don't see the surrounds on any pics. And they look ugly haha. Do I need to keep them on with this top?

If you don't have the door surrounds in the top will fill up like a balloon when driving! The surrounds are how the front of the side windows attach to the Jeep, if they're not there everything will be flapping in the breeze. They include the surrounds in the box so they need to be used. Let me know if you have any questions!

Ya that makes sense. Does taking out the rear window ever get any easier. Haha. I've only had it for a day but it took me at least 35min to get the window in. I couldn't get the zippers to match up. There's not enough room in the corners.

It will definitely get easier! As the fabric heat cycles in the sun it will stretch and conform better. You'll be able to zip it in and out much easier after it's warn in!

I've had time issues putting everything back on when I first got it. It's now been about 6 months and I can have the sides and back in within about 10 min or less. Regarding the back window, it's actually easier to undo the bottom of the sides and unzip the top back about 6-ish inches. It's easier to get the zippers to line up in the back. But like XTRyan said, once it's been on and in the sun for a while, the fabric will stretch and make it easier.
